The End of Life Option Act is a California law which allows terminally ill, mentally capable patients to request aid in dying – a prescription for medication that will end their life at their own chosen time. Signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on October 5, 2015, it went into effect on June 9, 2016. California is the fifth state to enact an aid-in-dying law. Learn about end-of-life options in California and what it means.

Speakers: Richard Beeman, Compassion and Choices; Thalia DeWolf, Bay Area End of Life Options; AnneMarie Olson, Hospice by the Bay; Wendell Stephenson, Final Exit Network. Also, a screening from excerpt of the documentary, A Dance with Death: The Final Days of Kelly Johnson, produced by The New Fillmore.
